Everton keeper Howard looking forward to summer homecoming

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard is eagerly anticipating this summer's trip to his homeland in the USA.

The American gloveman and his Toffees teammates will travel to the States for a pre-season tour in July which takes in two matches against Philadelphia Union and DC United.

Howard said it was a great chance for him to get back home and give something to the US soccer community, especially for an old friend heavily involved with second-year club the Union.

"Philadelphia Union is a fantastic club and I'm really looking forward to playing against them," said Howard.

"Nick Sakiewicz (a former goalkeeper, now the club's chief executive) brought me through the ranks when I was younger, I'm friends with members of their coaching staff and one of my best friends, Danny Califf, plays for them."
